[Gloversville, NY] The Family Counseling Center will open its doors to the community for a Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
January is National Blood Donor Month, the perfect time to donate blood and help save lives. Currently, the Red Cross is experiencing the worst blood shortage in over a decade. Healthy donors are urged to give to ensure patients won’t have to wait for critical transfusions.
The Family Counseling Center’s Event Center has played host to several community health efforts in recent weeks including weekly COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics. “The Family Counseling Center has always worked to help build a healthy community,” said Peter Lawrence, Deputy-Executive Director of the organization. “Our Events Center provides us with a platform for greater outreach for overall health. We are excited to welcome the Red Cross and help alleviate the need for blood.”
If you would like to schedule a time to donate, please go to: https://www.redcrossblood.org/donate-blood/manage-my-donations/rapidpass.html. The Red Cross is currently offering donor incentives including a chance to win a getaway to Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles, automatic entry to win a home theater package, and a $500 e-gift card.
